Preheat the oven to 325°F (165°C). Grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan.
In a medium bowl, combine the dried fruits, hot water, and rum. Let it sit for 10 minutes to plump up the fruits.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, alternating with the soaked fruits and their liquid. Stir in the chopped nuts.
Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
Bake for 1 hour and 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
